Focus Entertainment will publish Mundfish-developed first-person action RPG Atomic Heart for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam), the companies announced. The game has also been delayed from its previously planned 2022 release window to “this winter,” which spans December 2022 and March 2023.
“Five years ago, when we founded the studio, we set ourselves the goal of creating a world-class product that could be appreciated by millions of people all over the world,” said Mundfish CEO Robert Bagratuni in a press release. “And now, when the stakes are as high as ever, we are finally ready to release the momentum we have been accumulating over these years. We couldn’t be happier to head to the release with such an experienced publisher, and we have no doubt that Focus Entertainment will make the upcoming game launch truly outstanding.”
Focus Entertainment chief business development officer Julien Ramette added, “It’s an honor to collaborate with a studio as talented as Mundfish. We were amazed by Robert and his teams’ creative minds as soon as we started exchanging. The AAA standards they’ve provided for their first game is truly an accomplishment. Atomic Heart is sure to honor all players in search of an original, new generation experience.”
